It's been a while since I've seen that title...
The Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez has anointed himself president for life by proposing sweeping changes to the country's constitution.One of the problems with being President for Life is that your opponents can only gain power by ending your life. Of course, it is hard to know how committed Chavez is to the life component of his presidency, he may well take exile over life if the question is posed.
In the interim, the NDP are cheering like crazy for this latest development in the democratic values that they hold so close. Remember that these are the guys who want proportional representation so they will always have a say in the government without having to win anything.... similar to the values of Chavez.
